    Can anyone recommend forums for posting questions about old tractor repairs? I don't know much, but have purchased an old Ford 850 and have some questions about getting it into proper running order. I have overcome a few problems (installed a new carb kit, distributor cap, plug wires, etc), but would like a good resource for additional questions. I will need some hand holding where someone could walk me through the steps.

    For example, how to fix a bad oil leak. I still have to figure out where the oil is leaking out, but the exhaust is fairly clear, so it is not being burnt. Also, I am loosing hydraulic fluid. How do I find and repair the source of these leaks.

    Thanks,
    Dale (dh of Mary, TX)

    Put 'Yesterdays tractors' into google for a good site.
